A day after the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Amul paid a tribute to him with a doodle with “Abe ke liye Alvida” written on it. Former Japanese PM Abe was shot in the chest when he was delivering an election speech for his party on Friday. He was immediately taken to a hospital but he died a few hours later.

Shinzo Abe was born on 21 September 1954 in Tokyo to a prominent political family with significant economic influence throughout pre-war, wartime, and post-war Japan. His family was originally from Yamaguchi Prefecture, and Abe's registered residence (honseki chi) is Nagato, Yamaguchi.
As per Wikipedia, Abe was elected to the first district of Yamaguchi Prefecture in 1993 after his father's death in 1991, winning the most votes of the four Representatives elected in the SNTV multi-member district. In 1999, he became Director of the Social Affairs Division. He was Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary in the Yoshirō Mori and Junichirō Koizumi Cabinets from 2000 to 2003, after which he was appointed Secretary-General of the Liberal Democratic Party.
He served as prime minister of Japan and President of the Liberal Democratic Party from 2006 to 2007 and again from 2012 to 2020. He was the longest-serving prime minister in Japanese history.
